📰 August is National Black Business Month which is an important time 📅 to recognize Black-owned businesses across the country. ✊🏽
🧐 History 📚
Historian John William Templeton 👴🏾 & engineer Frederick E. Jordan Sr 👨🏾⚕️ founded National Black Business Month in August 2️⃣0️⃣0️⃣4️⃣. The purpose was to “drive the policy agenda affecting the 2.6 million African-American businesses.“ 🥳
